The minister: 'Why insult? It's vulgar'. Top trending on Twitter. Antoniozzi (Fdi) asks for the intervention of the Order of Journalists (ANSA)



 A question and answer on Twitter between the Defense Minister Guido Crosetto and the freelance journalist and writer Jeanne Perego

- who collaborates as a correspondent with various Italian and foreign newspapers from Germany, Austria and Switzerland - generated a debate with a series of comments on the platform social enough to become trendy with a hashtag in these hours.


    The controversy was triggered by a tweet made yesterday by Perego commenting on the video of Giorgia Meloni's press conference on Tuesday at Palazzo Chigi on the manoeuvre, in which the Prime Minister explained to journalists why she was forced to take her leave (to then instead remain after the request of the reporters to ask more questions): 'The return of the fishwife.

What an embarrassment, Perego had tweeted.


    Today came the reaction of

Minister Crosetto who, in defense of the prime minister, wrote: 'Institutions can and must be criticized because anyone's freedom to criticize is the salt of democracy.

But why insult them in a heavy and vulgar way?

Why do some, in Italy, always have to cross the border of the normal rules of respect between civilized people?'.

After a while, Perego's reply: 'Dear Crosetto, here it seems to me that those who have crossed the border of the normal rules of respect between civilized people have been precisely those who represent the institutions.

Would she have reacted like this on that stage?'.


    There are many tweets in response to the discussion and the hashtag #fishmonger has become trendy on twitter in the last few hours.

"Defining the Prime Minister as a 'fishmonger' as journalist Jeanne Perego did

constitutes contempt and requires the Order's immediate intervention".

This was stated by the deputy group leader of the Brothers of Italy in the Chamber, Alfredo Antoniozzi.

"We are dealing with offenses against an office of the State - says Antoniozzi - which have nothing to do with legitimate criticism, intangible according to the sacrosanct principle of freedom of the press. I wonder what the Order of Journalists will do in the face of an offense like this obvious and contemptuous, which offends the sense of the journalistic profession"
